Ulysses.
London: John Lane, The Bodley Head, 1936 - Quarto. Original white vellum, titles to spine and the Gill-designed Homeric bow device to boards, top edge gilt, others uncut. With the publisher's slipcase. Pencilled ownership inscription of the endocrinologist and Joyce collector Alfred T. Cowie, 1951. Spine very slightly faded but a particularly nice copy in the somewhat rubbed and marked slipcase. First UK edition, first impression. From a total printing of 1,000 numbered copies, this is one of 100 on handmade paper, bound in vellum and signed by the author. This deluxe issue of the Bodley Head Ulysses is one of the triumphs of 20th century book production. It established the text for the succeeding 25 years and printed as appendices the International Letter of Protest against Samuel Roth's piracy and the famous legal judgement by John M. Woolsey lifting the ban in America on the publishing of the book. Slocum and Cahoon A23. [Attributes: First Edition]
